Live sound and picture from 1913
26 August 2008 | by ( – See all my reviews

The 5,5 minute version of this short film is represented on a wonderful double disc Les Premiers Pas du Cinema (The Firsts of the Cinema), dedicated to the earliest experiments in colour and sound. The oldest colour films and surviving soundies are well represented on these discs. Nursery Favourites is a marvel. Even though it's presented as a pre-recorded number (singers miming to a commercial record), I strongly disagree. Having watched this performance many times, it is quite clear that this is a live recording - we see the performers and hear them at the same time. The way the singers sing, breathe, bump against the objects, drop things on the ground and add bits of spoken dialog strongly suggests that somewhere is a hidden orchestra and everything is done live in front of a camera. Which probably makes this the first time ever a live performance is recorded on a sound stock. Which makes this marvel from 1913 one of the most fascinating film-sound documents of all times.
